Cool Breeze (1972)

A remake of John Huston's "The Asphalt Jungle" with an all-black cast.

A paroled convict plans to steal $3 million worth of jewels, sell them & use the bread to start a bank to back black businesses.

He is assisted by two pals- his half-brother & a preacher who also works as a thief.

But the heist ultimately fails.

Fashionable '70's violence set against a Los Angeles backdrop with a pulsating soundtrack by Rhythm and Blues legend Solomon Burke
